Total misCommunication

MEMO FROM CEO TO MANAGER

Today at 11 o'clock there will be a total eclipse of the
sun. This is when the sun disappears behind the moon for
two minutes. As this is something that cannot be seen every
day, time will be allowed for employees to view the eclipse
in the parking lot. Staff should meet in the lot at ten to
eleven, when I will deliver a short speech introducing the
eclipse, and giving some background information. Safety
goggles will be made available at a small cost.
 

THEN MEMO FROM MANAGER TO DEPARTMENT HEADS

Today at ten to eleven, all staff should meet in the car
park. This will be followed by a total eclipse of the sun,
which will appear for two minutes. For a moderate cost,
this will be made safe with goggles. The CEO will deliver a
short speech beforehand to give us all some information.
This is not something that can be seen every day.
 

FOLLOWED BY MEMO FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS TO FLOOR MANAGER

The CEO will today deliver a short speech to make the sun
disappear for two minutes in the form of an eclipse. This
is something that cannot be seen every day, so staff will
meet in the car park at ten or eleven. This will be safe,
if you pay a moderate cost.


AND MEMO FROM FLOOR MANAGER TO SUPERVISOR

Ten or eleven staff are to go to the car park, where the
CEO will eclipse the sun for two minutes. This doesn't
happen every day. It will be safe, and as usual it will
cost you.

 
FINALLY MEMO FROM SUPERVISOR TO STAFF

Some staff will go to the car park today to see the CEO
disappear. It is a pity this doesn't happen everyday.
